Uneven Recovery Leaves Many Hispanic, Black, and Low-Income Adults Struggling

This report assesses how adults and their families were faring six months into the COVID-19 pandemic. Using data from a nationally representative survey of nonelderly adults, the reports finds that one in four adults reported that their family’s financial situation was worse in September 2020 than it was at the beginning of March 2020, before the pandemic caused a sharp economic recession, and that the deterioration in families’ financial situations varied significantly by race/ethnicity and income.
